Philips Releases Mini Hi-Fi System 300 W iPhone/iPod DJ Boombox
There’s not much information about this Philips disco iPhone/iPod boom box, but it appears to have dual rotating docks for playing and charging your iPod/iPhone – we can’t tell if you can manipulate tracks (i.e. scratching) with the platters without the included Algoriddim djay app (Apparently not, they rotate, but that’s about it… —Ed.). There does appear to be a crossfader for juggling playback between the two iPods/iPhones on the FWP3200D/05. What Philips does lack in words, it makes up in design…the unit certainly looks pretty sweet.
To really kick in the 70’s disco vibe, the unit sports “dynamic lighting for dancing to the beat.” As the music starts to play the party machine is transformed by dynamic lighting which pulses in time to the beat of the chosen song. With silver and gold finishing touches to the speakers, the Philips DJ-Dock looks like it’s ready rock the Total Recall after-party. Users can choose to change the colour of the light to blue, red, purple or an alternating combination, or alternatively turn off the lights completely with the included remote.
